A wordless mystery-adventure using clay animation that explores problem solving, communication, and friendship. The story is loosely based on an ancient East Indian (here described as 11th century Arabic) folktale of six blind men who come upon an elephant and attempt to describe it.  "Whazzat?" won the Grand Prix of the 1975 Third International Animation Film Festival in New York at Columbia University. Another print of this film can be viewed at this link (CLICK HERE).
